Picking up some grocerie in the Lotus Elise

We went to a car cruise where I had planned on filming but it then started raining and the rest of the people from the cruise took off as I hung back because I didn't feel like driving like a jack ass in the rain.. and good thing I didn't! The Galveston PD setup a road block and busted them all! Here's a video anyway where we decided to get groceries instead after we passed them up

I think you misunderstand what "Lotus in the Media" means. I could be wrong, but I believe you making a video of picking up pumpkins and/or groceries and posting it to YouTube (or anywhere else) doesn't qualify.

"Lotus in the Media" would be the announcement of a new Lotus model, a review of a Lotus or a new corporate strategy as it relates to Lotus (these are just examples) in the mainstream commercial media. Again, I could be way off base.

I was hoping to see some groceries...

Uncage your garage queen and quit being a pansy. Daily drive it!

To be clear, the description of "Lotus in the Media" right below it says "Lotus articles, stories, programs, spottings, etc. in magazines, newspapers, television, movies, online...."

I could use some root beer if you're making a run.

@Gagoss have you seen these videos :

If you want to make more meaning videos, do something like this or track related stuff, driving coaching.. Your videos need something a little more... Related I suppose. Not sure what your motive is, but IMO it needs some work.

You are.

If you want official media announcements, you can always use Facebook.

I found it quite entertaining. Always nice to see another member's face while enjoying his/her car (and having a cute passenger along is bonus)... and to see him promoting the practicality of using the car as a daily driver (which has been debated since day 1) is cool, not to mention his public Vlog, which helps bring the brand to more people.

I hope he posts more.

I do this as a hobby. A lot of people tell me my videos are helpful. I don't plan anything I just film random things I do with my car. No one is forcing anyone to watch my videos. If folks don't like em, just don't watch it
